We had a really lovely night at The Pheasant, which is a gorgeous pub tucked away just off the A66 near Bassenthwaite. We ate in the main restaurant which carried a cover charge if £2.50 each but included an amuse bouche and fantastic homemade bread rolls. The Service was cheery and efficient and the food very good. Others had expressed... More

Despite or perhaps because of being one of the most popular tourist areas in the UK, service and hospitality in the Lake District is often in short supply. However, the Pheasant Inn at Bassenthwaite is a very pleasant exception to this disappointing rule. Stayed for the first time for one night recently to do some winter walking in the local... More

We have been attending this Hotel/Inn for years and I have never taken time out to write a review. It is really a place we would have preferred to keep secret but that is unfair, they deserve recognition. Its a typical Lakes Inn that as not tried to reinvent itself, well it as changed but retained the character that so... More

This was our second visit to this charming inn; this time to indulge in the whole experience. Despite the mild weather all the radiators were on full blast along with fully stoked fires! Afternoon tea beckoned but coupled with the exhausting heat there appeared to be a distinct lack of staff, even though it was half term! Finally our tea... More

Stumbled upon The Pheasant Inn whilst on a walking trip. We've tried a myriad of pubs across the length and breadth of the Lakes and this is a gem. We lunched here on two consecutive days after summiting fells in the Bassenthwaite area and found the food and ambiance compared extremely favourably with the best pubs we've been in. Admittedly,...

Dined at this restaurant twice during our 3 night stay in Bassenthwaite. The staff could not have been more helpful when booking. The food was excellent as was the service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and bear in mind we only ate in the Bistro. We are saving the main restaurant for our next visit.

For many years The Pheasant has been one of our favourite places to eat on special occasions but not any more. My husband and son in law both celebrated very special birthdays this week and we thought where better to go than the Pheasant. It was the first time we had had the opportunity to take our daughter and her... More

I had written a review a month ago, but it's disappeared. We had a visit to the Pheasant Inn in August, on a Saturday night, we had booked in advance with our dog...The meal was lovely, the staff were excellent. We tried to make a visit again, in September, to be rudely told that dogs are not allowed in after... More
